I took this picture during our class up party.  We had no idea how much we were going to hate carrying those ----ing boats.

As if I didn't get enough of "Wet -n- Sandy" through the week.  My roommate and I loved to surf.  Check out all the duck tape on my long board.

The best seven minute work out you will ever need.

An aerial shot of NAB Coronado.  This picture must have been taken in the 80's because it looks like the SEAL TEAM 5 building and the existing climbing tower were under construction.

Yet another night testing beer for a local establishment.  O'Hungry's is an Irish Pub in old town San Diego.  It's still there and I highly recommend a visit if the opportunity ever presents itself.

This shot was taken during the Fourth of  July celebration in 1992.  Our Command was tasked with putting on a "Capabilities" show for the local public.  In the background is the Bay  Bridge.

Sitting on my gear drying cage, watching the sun set out over the Pacific .  That tall building in the background is the parachute drying loft at SEAL TEAM ONE .

I call this shot "Tres Amigos"
I spent just about every second of my time in the Navy with these two guys.  From C-900 all the way to my discharge.

Another photo mama would be proud of.  It is customary to do obnoxious things with your hair, right before it gets shaved off.

Terrorizing the local golf course.  This photo would make my dad sick.  (He is a Marshall at St. Peters Municipal Golf Course)

Hanging out on the wall.  A fine spot to watch for beautiful young women walking "OUR" beach.

Last, but certainly not least.  I got this type written note in the mail right after I got hurt.  My mom knew how hard I worked to get where I was and sent this to me in an envelope with nothing else.  It  makes me proud to think of how she responded when her baby boy was not at the top of his game.
This poem was written by President Teddy Roosevelt in 1910.  God Bless You Mom.

Hoo-Yahhhhhhhh!
